US President Trump accused Canadian PM Justin Trudeau (also, G7 summit chairman) of making "false statements" and said the US won't endorse a G7 communique. "Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive tariffs to our farmers, workers, and companies, I have instructed our US Reps not to endorse the Communique," Trump tweeted.

Trump calls Justin 'very dishonest and weak'
In another tweet, Trump said, the Canadian PM acted so "meek and mild" in their joint discussions only to pledge later in a press conference that he would not be pushed around. "Very dishonest & weak," Trump said, adding that recently imposed US tariffs on imports of Canadian steel and aluminum were in response to similar measures imposed on American dairy products by Canada.
